Heavy Chants Fill The Air As Karua, Munya Enter Meru County

In a video which has just surfaced online on what is going on Meru County during the Azimio La Umoja rally led by Narc Kenya leader Martha Karua and Agriculture CS Peter Munya, it has appeared that the mountain is still getting quite slippery for Raila to reach its peak.

Just two days after being unveiled as Raila Odinga's presidential running mate in an event which was graced by many Kenyans and more so women, Karua immediately took her campaigns to Mount Kenya Region where Raila has had much difficulties to penetrate.

She started with Kirinyaga County where she was given a massive welcoming and forced to address the county residents to late hours.

However, things have turned to be somehow different in Meru County where she has been accompanied by the Agriculture CS Peter Munya among other top Mount Kenya politicians allied to Uhuru Kenyatta.

In a video which has just surfaced online this evening, the residents who have welcomed her and Azimio team are heard making heavy chants with DP Ruto's name and UDA party which has now turned to be the most popular party in the region.

From the video captured upon her arrival in Meru to drum up support for Raila's presidential bid, you can see her motorcade speeding up as loud UDA and DP Ruto chants fill the air.

For over the last one decade since the end of Kibaki's era as the head of state, Meru County has been perceived by many as CS Peter Munya's political turf.

And so him being on the side of the ODM leader Raila Odinga under Azimio La Umoja, many have been raising opinions that the ground would shift to the side of Raila and Uhuru more than Ruto's side.

That was and is still expected to happen with the support of Meru County Governor Kiraitu Murungi who also declared his full support for the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition flag-bearer Raila Odinga some couple of months ago.
